CBL#167 – Accepting our Inner Beauty and Sexuality leads to Love

Saturday, May 12th, 2012

"Life is not a problem to be solved, it is a mystery to be lived."

This quote was shared by my guest, Laura Maher, author of "Auntie Mom." Her book is a memoir of a year in her life where she raised her niece and nephew. It was an organic and orgasmic experience for her. Laura beautifully and vulnerably shares how she became more confident living in the mystery after this experience. To listen to her interview, and my memoir of how I found the path to "Living an Organic and Orgasmic Life," click the listen button below.


When her twenty-nine year old sister suffered a stroke, L.A. businesswoman Laura Maher returned home to Boston. During the year her sister spent in recovery, Laura moved her eight-year-old nephew and six-year-old niece to California. Because her fiancé did not want to “raise someone else’s kids”, their relationship ended, and as a result, she did not have a home for her or the kids to live in. While on a road-trip, Laura and the kids met a wealthy couple who invited them to live on their estate in the Santa Cruz Mountains.

Auntie Mom is an inspiring true story of a single woman’s yearlong adventure into motherhood. Laura weaves a rich tapestry of candid tales that speak to the heart of the age-old struggle every woman faces in her role as parent, in her search for self-identity. It’s a story of family, and faith, and the forgiveness that occurs when embracing the messy, complex situations we all find ourselves in when we step into the role of parent.

Sunday, April 29th, 2012

Did you know that Elvis learned his moves from going to strip clubs as a young man? This bit of fun trivia was shared by my guest this week, Pablo Solomon. 

Pablo was the perfect guest this month of "Earth Day," as he was a pioneer in the environmental movement. He is also an artist who uses the qualities of beauty and sexuality in his art and designs. He is passionate about the balance of beauty in nature, and has a huge vision for how we can be sustainable with true freedom. 

He spoke about the Buffalo Bayou water clean up project when he was growing up. He didn't get a chance to say "on air," but wanted to add the following wonderful news. Miraculously a combination of laws and responsible businesses came together and now Buffalo Bayou again has fish and alligators and canoes. It is being turned into a parkway for miles through the center of Houston. This is perhaps the most impressive example in America of what people and responsible businesses can do when they work together and not against one another.  

Another pioneer woman who brings a true feeling of freedom to her life is Maya Angelou. Coach Betty Louise reads her famous poem "Phenomenal Woman," as it is a beautiful expression of inner beauty and sexuality. To listen to the whole show, click the listen button below.
